Thursday Basketball at Potrero Hill Courts
"Thursday Basketball at Potrero Hill Courts" tracks a few years of playing pick-up basketball in San Francisco. Taken at the end of each session, the photographs reveal different groups of players, some participants returning each week, others only once. The attitudes and poses of the participants echo those seen in high school teams, sports superstars, trophy rooms, and casual snapshots.
Many of the participants were classmates and I liked getting to know them in a physical way that discussions in the classroom didn't permit. I wanted to mark each occasion before the experience evaporated like the sweat off our skin.
